Pond fun/decorating! and baby ducks!

This is what my hubby and I have been working on! The kids are going to have so much fun this summer! We are going to have our own water park in our own back yard! LOL
We have an island in the middle with 2 large oak trees on it and a bridge that goes across. We are building a gazebo over the water. The kids can get in their tubes and circle the island! Now we have a rope swing they can swing out! We still need to get an ariator for the back of the pond. We love the water tower! (my hubby made it!)It ciculates the water and sounds so nice! My hubby also finally got our swing up! OMG! I love sitting out there and listening to nature! It is so calming! We are working on a waterfall as well not only for looks but to circulate the water as well!
Here are some of the pics:

Here is the swing! Hubby added 2 seating areas to the sides and laid some brick down for our feet!

And last but not least here are our 15 baby ducks! They are growing so fast!

Finally got some mojo back!

I have missed sewing more than I can tell ya! Now that I work outside the home, there just isn't enough of "Me" to go around! We have been working on our pond on my off days so that has been taking time away from my me time as well!
I had made this 3D doll a while back, but wasn't satisfied with the frame. It needed something more. Well I finally figured out what it needed! Some rusty stars paint and staining! LOL The only problem I am having is how to ship her? Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated! If anyone ever ships paintings and knows how to package them PLEASE email me or post! TY! :)
Here she is!

I also finished up a Bear and 4 5 1/2" Raggedies as well as a stand up Raggedy. Still not sure if I want to list them on Feebay or just post them here or on my website! Heck if you see one that calls to your heartstrings, shoot me an offer!
Here are their pics:
